Members of Commission I of the House of Representative Charles Honoris are convinced that the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) and Police and BIN are able to uncover a network of suicide bombings in Kampung Melayu, East Jakarta.
“I have confidence that the police and intelligence apparatus can work effectively in dismantling and eradicating this terror network,” Charles said in a written statement on Thursday.
The PDI-P politician strongly condemned the acts of terrorism.
According to Charles, the bombers are very cowardly and want to undermine the authority of the government so that there is chaos in the community.
“Terrorism is a world problem in which Indonesia today also does not escape being the victim of the action, terrorists want to spread the fear and anxiety of the public,” said Charles.
Charles asked the public not to be hooked and not to be afraid. He warned not to get the terrorists to get what they want.
